Online Training Session – Tackling Sickness Absence – with Michael Bauer of Cumbria Employment Solicitors, 25th November

This training is included in our Black Friday sale! Get 10% off when booking until Wednesday 1st December with code BLACKFRIDAY.


Long-term sickness absence and/or persistent short-term absence has impacts on productivity, your ability to plan ahead and sometimes on the morale and attitude of other staff.

This practical and “can-do” training will:

  • Provide practical tips and guidance to minimise avoidable absence;

In essence, the training is about helping you to get the best out of your staff fairly and with the minimum of risk, hassle and cost.
